PCI Compliance Is Important for All Startups

Access & Authorization

Any business that accepts payment cards has to be PCI compliant and have a responsibility to manage and transmit customers' card information in a secure way.
For companies building SaaS solutions, it is certainly important to understand how serious of a security risk not being PCI compliant is to your businesses' bottom line and its reputation.


With the pace of innovation changing so quickly, startups sometimes overlook security and compliance.


One of the most common requests that startups receive from outside parties is proof of their Cybersecurity plan and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance status.


The lack of an appropriate reply can be the difference in you landing that new contract or that new deal.The wrong answer (“we’re working on it”) will almost always cause friction and pull back from your potential partners.


A plan to address customer data security should always be high on the list of priorities for startups to minimize technical and business disruption.


The good news is that Cybershield Security can help you automate the confusing and time consuming task of achieving your PCI-DSS compliance.
